    Ground Control Grid

    Busted a couple spokes and the old Ground Control was looking pretty bad so while I had everything apart I upgraded to a new Grid. So far I like it. Much stiffer side walls lets me run slightly less PSI.

    2K sounds like a good run on a tire. I never track my miles so have no clue how many miles I put on the old tire.

    Front or rear? My crossmark rear breaks on climbs more than I'd like.
    Luke, this is your father's lightsaber. I cut him in 1/2 to get it.

    If you're getting 2,000 miles out of a tire, I'd say you don't need to ponder what tire to run any more.
    Nice KOM, sorry about your penis.
